All Catsters are invited to participate in a Halloween Costume contest!
The Contest will be tons of fun and end with a fun Halloween party where we will take a hay ride over to the judging ring.
Our special Valet parking will park your car and escort you to the Hay Ride that will wind through a spooky fun corn maze on its way to the Judging Ring.
Next to the Judging ring we will serve refreshments including Apple Cider, Caramel Apples, Popcorn Balls, Spooky Eye Ball and worm casserole (made with pealed grapes and spaghetti), Pumpkin and Apple pies and a potluck table where every cat can bring their favorite dish to share.
There will be a kitten tent filled with entertainment so you can drop off your kittens and enjoy the night. The kitten tent will have spooky juicy cups filled with cider for each kitten to enjoy and bring home.


1. Scariest
2. Funniest
3. Most creative Real Costume
4. Most creative photo-shopped costume
5. Best overall themed picture - meaning the background, the action in the shot, and the costume all go together.
6. Least excited to be in a costume.
7. Best dressed.

3d: 1 Halloween Rosette
2nd: 1 zealie + 1 Halloween Rosette
1st: 1 zealie + 1 Halloween special gift

To enter your pictures:
1) post them to your profile.
2) add the tag: Halloween_Contest_2010
3) add in the description: Which category the picture is for.
4) Make a post in this thread by OCT 29 at 4PM Central Standard Time For each cat who is entering when you are ready.You can add links to your pictures if you wish, but as not all catsters are comfortable with that using the photo book is the easiest way.

Get festive in a Halloween costume or photo-shop yourself into one. Be creative!
Entry must include if picture was photo-shopped or not.
You can either enter the same picture for all categories, Or you can enter a different picture for each, however only one picture per pet is allowed for each category.
By Default if you do not specify a category your picture will be entered into all categories.
You can choose to have a different costume for each category or use the same costume.
All of your cat family can enter, just make sure each one has their pictures on their own profile, and each fur entering needs to make their own post to this thread.

I could enter picture1 into categories 1,3,5 and picture2 into categories 2,3,6 and picture3 into category 7- as long as the category name is with each picture.
Picture1 I could have on a zombie costume, picture2 I could have on a which costume, picture3 I could have on a ghost costume OR I could have the same costume for picture1,picture2, and picture3.
However I can Not enter picture1 and picture2 into categories 1,3,5 and have picture3 entered in categories 2,4,6,7 because then I would have two entries in the same categories.
If Bumpurr and Cowboy were both entering, they would each have to make their own post to this thread indicating they are entering the contest. Entries must be submitted by OCT 29 at 4PM Central Standard Time.

I will announce the winners of each category in this thread and include links to the winning pictures.
Judging Announcements will start at 8PM CST OCT 29.

Prizes for each cat-a-gorie are pre-determined and will be sent off to the engravers and on the winners shortly after the judging announcements are made.

I simply cannot wait to see all the fun entries we receive and see all of you at the Costume Party. You can come to the party wearing your costume if you would like!

I forgot to mention we will have Games set up as well so while you are waiting for the judging announcements Starting at 4PM CST you can play all sorts of games in the tent.
We will have:
Bobbing for apples- I will play that one!
Turtle racing
A 6 legged Race (tie up one front leg to your partner's front leg and your back leg to your partner's back leg and race!)
A potato sack race
Carry the egg on the spoon in your mouth race
Pin the tail on the black cat (only on the poster on the wall please)
Musical cat trees
Square dancing/ line dancing
A Haunted corn maze tour outside.

AWESOME JOB! applause

Bumpurr will donate the big flashing jack-o-lantern for first prize, for the Most Creative Real Costume, and donate the horsies, for the haunted hay ride, but we gotta get Apollo to drive the horsies, mol. wave

Maybe we can ask Catster, if they could come up with some Halloween icons, Apollo or Gimli, can you ask for us? wave

Lotta football stuff will be going on Sun and Mon, just keep this Bumpurr'd up, mol, so other kitties see it, and I will mention it in other posts, in case kitties don't see it. You did an EXCELLENT job on this! applause

Remember: All Your pictures just needed to be added to your photobook - They dont have to be in spot #1. Just make sure to put the tag Halloween_Contest_2010 in the tags section of your picture.

If you feel comfortable doing so you can post a link to each of your pictures here, or just post telling me you are entering and I will check your profile at judging time!

Thank you for everyone who is helping with donations. Misty wants to know if anyone wants to sign up on "clean up crew" duty laugh out loud

There are some free programs out there that can be used instead of the branded photoshop. Gimp, Paint.net , even MS Paint if you get creative.
"Photoshopped" is just a term meaning you weren't really wearing the costume and the computer was used to edit you into one. So dont give up just yet.

Plus you can always enter into the "least excited to be in a costume" cat-agorie. big grin

Remember kitties, you can use as many different costumes as you want in any combination, however you can only submit one photo per category!

If you have questions about where to get programs to help edit your photos, or about the contest please ask here or Pawmail me!

What can I get- into now?

Hey Kitties! Dont forget to dig out your Halloween costumes and take some pictures.

We know everyfur is sad this week because of the passing of our dear friend Athena, but we also know that she would not want us to stay sad for long, because she is healthy and restored at the Bridge and being taken care of by all our angelfurs, including our Whispers.

So I am reminding everyone of the Contest for AnnaBelle. I have my Clipboard ready, and I am ready to help Judge AnnaBelle with the contest!

A question for AnnaBelle:
Where do we put "which category the picture is for". Does that go in with the tag or underneath the picture as it shows on the cat's page, or do we post it here?

When you are in the Manage photos screen there is a place for "caption" and tags. Just add the categories into the "caption" field.
You can either name them or just put numbers like (1,4,7).

Just make sure that in the tag field you have Halloween_Contest_2010 - exactly as shown so I can find you.

Keep the Questions comming!

I cant wait to see all the entries, I was checking out the "Halloween" tag today and saw that LOTS of cats dress up for Halloween so hopefully lots of cats will enter!
